Don't ever make apologies for being the person your Mum would be proud of!

Yesterday was hard and you might feel under-appreciated; staying out of the Hate-clubs might not earn you a place in the cool crowd, but it keeps your karma clear :)

One day you will have to grieve again, but remember grief is like a tunnel- there is an end. Some days will be dark, but at the end there is always light.....The ice has to melt, flowers will bloom again, and it will hurt a little less each day.

These are things you won't let anyone else tell you when it happens....remember you've survived it before. And remember to read this :)

How amazing was it to watch your Dad surprise your Mum by renewing their vows in the church they married in, on their 40th Anniversary?!?! That same year you got to wear your Mum's veil...
Sometimes work challenges you to remember that marriage can last the distance, but now at 45 years- you have two amazing people to look up to!!!

You might be frustrated right now, but remember how lucky you are to be employed and valued for the work you do!

On a day when many are angry over words, just remember: your words are your own, but you must always accept responsibility for them.

As your Daddy gets older and needs to rely on you more, don't EVER get frustrated with him.  Just enjoy every second of having him around :-)

should it turn out that's just the two of you- try not to be bitter and twisted towards anyone who is lucky enough to spawn...lol....well, maybe just a little bit ;-)
Always remember how important it is to show love and kindness...family, friends, strangers...life is too short for anything else!
Going away on your own was a hard thing to do- but you survived.  The first day is always the hardest, but remember it gets easier and you can be okay on your own :-)

You are SO lucky to have a wonderful, kind-hearted man that loves you.
Remember all of the amazing things he does for you- today it was a Sticky Note saying "Kiss Your Husband"; right now he is cooking you dinner.

Be proud of yourself for doing the brave thing.  You might be a bit scared and uncertain about how things will turn out, but going with the flow hasn't ever let you down...

Remember that little book of thankyous you used to keep?  Maybe you should start it again.  Everyday there was someone to thank for making a difference to your life.
You have SO much to be grateful for- stop being such a cow!

If this is it, if it's just the two of you... you'll be okay!
Think of all the overseas holidays...

Remember when you were little all you ever wanted to be was a fashion designer?
Sometimes that childhood dream that makes you smile when you tell people is exactly what you're meant to do. 
Don't ever forget that money and career isn't everything, and how much you want your kids to be themselves, and happy.

Back in My Day

I don't know if I've grown up yet, but I seem to have gotten old.  I don't want to to forget what it was to be six, sixteen or twenty-six, or what I thought about life, love, and leaving this world.  Sometimes I need little reminders of who and how I wanted to be, and how I want to live, love and leave.
